Cuttlebug Spot - Inspired by a magazine advert

Tuesday, 25 January 2011

Hum, not a good start when you don't buy a magazine except for one card making magazine. So I asked my sister (who buys Hello) what sort of ads are in there - perfume, clothes, food, handbags etc. Oh a handbag for me, so then it was on the web to find some Christian Dior handbag ads. Wow, they are pricey but so gorgeous. Here's my take on their handbags and much cheaper too. But, I'd got so carried away with stitching and sewing on beads, that I'd forgotten to use my Cuttlebug!! So there is only a little bit on the bag, hope you forgive me.

Inspired by an Advert

  6. I agree with Donna THis bag is better than the ones in the ads! Absolutely gorgeous Kerry I love all the detail you've put on the bag and the handle is fabulous!

  7. Gorgeous creation Kerry! Love your take on the bag with the beaded handle. Yes, Dior's are pricey, my daughter has the eyeglass frames, over $350.00, hate to think of what a purse would cost. Too cute and a lot cheaper too, lol!!
    Awesome take on the challenge!

    Hugz, xx
